R.I. officials announce new harbor cranes

PROVIDENCE – Officials last week announced that two new mobile harbor cranes for the Port of Providence have been ordered and are now being manufactured by Austria-based Liebherr Group.

According to a news release, the two cranes are part of a $20 million enhancement project funded by a federal grant secured by Rhode Island’s congressional delegation and private investment by the nonprofit ProvPort. The new cranes will replace two leased cranes from New Jersey that are more than 30 years old.

Chafee’s office managed the grant process and the state procurement process. In September, at Providence’s request, Rhode Island partnered with the city to formally assume control of the federal grant. •
